Founded in 1969, the Zamir Chorale of  Boston’s mission is to serve as “a musical and educational organization dedicated to raising awareness of the breadth and beauty of Jewish culture through performances, recordings, symposia, publications, and musical commissions.

Led by Founder and Artistic Director Joshua Jacobson, the Chorale comprises more than 45 experienced volunteer singers who perform music spanning thousands of years, four continents, and a variety of styles, both classical and popular.

Zamir’s repertoire includes Jewish liturgical pieces, major classical works, music of  the Holocaust, newly commissioned compositions, and Israeli, Yiddish, and Ladino folksongs. Zamir’s music is enjoyed by people of all ages, religions and races. Concerts can be designed to meet the special requirements and always provide an educational component.

In addition to enjoying a devoted following in the Greater Boston area, Zamir has achieved a far-reaching reputation through its 21 recordings and frequent tours throughout the United States, as well as in Israel and Europe. The documentary film, Zamir: Jewish Voices Return to Poland, has been shown across the country on public television stations. In January 2006, Zamir was invited to perform at the United Nations General Assembly for the first International Day to Commemorate Victims of the Holocaust.
